  |-3-----------2-------|
  |-3-----------3-------|
  |-1-----------3-------|

  Speechless again at a loss for words
  But they wouldn't be heard anyway would they
  The minimum required what the offer is
  And that's all you give

  Bbsus2 > Fmaj7

  Stranded above all the friction here
  Your motives aren't clear enough to see

More of the F/C > G/D > F/C > G/D > Bsus2 part here, a little different but more or less the same

  I will be unstable
  I'm not just a passerby
  I hate sudden changes

  Bbsus2 > F

  Speechless again with no time to spare
  Could you pretend that you care just once for me
  At least for a while put your guards away
  There's no one to blame

  -1-----------3-------3-------------------3-----
  -----------------------------------------------

  Words can't hear this silent ear
  (Fear won't leave here first)
  Certain sigh

  Why frame time to time spent near
  (Nearness loses sight)
  Sight signed off

  Words can't hear this silent ear
  (Fear won't leave here first)
  Certain sigh

The last time, end on the D

next part
  Bbmaj7 > Em > Bbmaj7 > F#m > 
  Bbmaj7 > Em > Bbmaj7 > F#m > 
  F > F#m > F

play those like this
   Bbmaj7 Em F#m F
  -1------0--2---1--
  -3------0--2---1--
  -2------0--2---2--
  -3------2--4---3--
  -1------2--4---3--
  --------0--2---1--

this should get you going on the lead played over those chords

       Bbmaj7                                      Em

and so on, until

  E > E/F# > E/G# > Asus2

  Your words occur to me sometimes
  Behind the reasons why we're here
  And walk on a clear wire
  Trapeze Jesus cautious and slow
  So quick to lunge brain to tongue
  To find I'm the only one
  The only one that's fit to choose
  Another side another tool
  And what makes up your silver spoon
  That makes you want to live again

Can play those like this

    E > E/F# > E/G# > Asus2

Here's the start of the lead, thanks Jon Mitchell
